Belize Wins Big at the 2015 World Travel Awards

And the Winners Are: Ambergris Caye and Placencia! Each October, a festive, world-wide event draws thousands of people dressed in formal finery to an event that receives lots of media coverage. It’s not the Oscars. Nor the Super Bowl—yet this occasion is so eagerly anticipated, it rivals attention footballers receive when they compete for the World Cup. We’re talking about the 2015 World Travel Awards (WTA), a formal affair held in Bogota, Columbia that hosted the crème de la crème of travel professionals. They came together for the 22nd year to heap honors on the top travel destinations and travel industry innovators on the planet. While a number of Belize destinations and organizations were nominated for 2015 World Travel Award honors, expectations were low because the nation’s tourism industry is so new. When it was announced that, in the Central America and Mexico category, Belize had taken not one, but two top prizes, representatives from Belize were beside themselves with joy. Ambergris Caye was named the Leading Destination in the Caribbean for 2015 and Placencia was the top vote getter in the Leading Beach Destination category for 2015. When a nation with a fledgling tourist industry grabs honors away from […]

Southwest to start flying to Belize next month

Belize is now less than a month away from the arrival of Southwest Airlines to our shores. The low-budget airline begins operations from Houston on October 15, 2015 and tickets are now on sale. It is now easier to get to Belize with airlines like Southwest flying to Belize in October and Copa Airlines flying from Panama to Belize in December. In addition, other airlines like American Airlines, Delta and United flying to Belize are offering cheaper flights in what has become known as “The Southwest Effect.” Belize continues to be one of the top destinations to visit in Central America and the Caribbean, and one of the top places to visit in Belize is Ambergris Caye, which TripAdvisor recognizes as one of the best islands to visit in the world. Earlier this year Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly announced  that Southwest Airlines will offer nonstop flights to Costa Rica, Belize and Jamaica from Hobby Airport’s international terminal which puts the airline in head-to-head competition with United Airlines, which flies to all those locations from Houston’s larger airport, George Bush Intercontinental, according to Ambergris Today. Southwest Airlines is known for allowing free baggage on your flight (up to two 50lb […]

Snorkeling

No two islands are the same. If you don’t believe, take a trip to Caye Caulker, a quaint fishing island located just 25 minutes south of  Ambergris Caye.It used to be a sleepy fishing village ‘back in the day’ and it proudly retains much of that laid back village life.

Summer in Belize

Belize Summers at Banyan Bay There is a common misconception of what summer is like on San Pedro Ambergris Caye. Some of our best diving, and fishing, happens in June, July and August. When relaxing in the shade of a palapa or a coconut tree our trade winds will keep you cool. Our average temperatures in the summers are around 87 degrees Fahrenheit.
